Wellbeing, delivered

Since launching online in 2017 we have been delivering freshly-made, totally tasty, nourishing food to the offices of Leeds city centre.

Whether you want lunch for one, are eating with colleagues or organising food for a team meeting, talk to us. We even deliver nutrition workshops to clients which are full of practical advice and no boring bits

Our aim is to deliver wellbeing for people and the planet, so as well as the best, most nutritious and delicious food, we deliver by cargo cycle, use 100% recyclable and compostable packaging and keep food waste to almost zero with our advance ordering system.

Goodness – lots of it!

Lean Lunch meals aren’t about restricting yourself. They’re about cramming as much good stuff and flavour into one meal as humanly possible.

You’ll always get at least 3 of your 5 a day, and we’re all for healthy fats too. They help keep you feeling full and your blood sugar levels balanced, and they’re great brain food. So by 3pm you’re much more likely to be powered up to finish the day on a high, rather than reaching for the digestives. Just take a look at our menu.

Keeping it local

We deliver all city centre orders by cargo bike (and further afield by vehicle) so for now Lean Lunch covers a 20 mile radius of Leeds. It means we can keep things as fresh and eco as possible by minimising how far your food travels.

We also buy all our ingredients from local, independent suppliers, including Tarbett’s Fishmongers, Sykes House Farm and C. Scruton Produce greengrocers.

Our story

We were set up by Sat and Charlotte in July 2017 after Sat was struggling to find decent lunches despite working in Leeds City Centre. All he wanted was something convenient, tasty and healthy.

He started buying ingredients from the supermarket and making lunch at work. It was healthy and he had more energy... but it definitely wasn’t convenient or tasty.

And it got really, really boring.

Love food? Us too.

He knew there had to be a better way – and the result is Lean Lunch, which he set up with his wife Charlotte. They are proud to have launched the first and only online food delivery service in the North that is dedicated to wellbeing and sustainability.

Two total foodies, who think there’s no reason healthy food can’t be mouth-wateringly delicious and thoroughly satisfying, Sat & Charlotte trained with the best chefs, worked with nutritionists and now employ a team of talented foodies to bring you Lean Lunch...
